SPiN Navigation System™

Capital Health Medical Center – Hopewell is one of the first hospitals in the region to offer the SPiN Navigation System™ by Veran™ Medical Technologies. Similar to the GPS in your car, the SPiN System™ uses data from your chest CT scans to create a 3D map of your lungs. Guided by the map, our trained specialists use sensor-equipped instruments to accurately navigate to nodules in virtually any location within the lungs, biopsy them, and seamlessly transition to a transthoracic needle aspiration (TTNA) in the same procedure, as needed. The SPiN System™ provides patients with:

  • Highly accurate, minimally invasive procedures—from diagnosis to treatment.
  • Faster time to diagnosis, which means less wait for life-saving interventions.
  • Accurate localization of targets, even those that move during the natural course of breathing.
